    haha just joking la you need much more than that

    agree with recommendations, just note that R2004 is quite heavy at 1.7kg, try it out at TK Foto see if you can imaging yourself lugging it around. It you feel lazy to bring out tripod you will not bring it out! T1004X is much more compact when folded, but max height is much less, good for overseas travelling
    Or you can consider getting the R1004 (some would recommend upgrading the head to G20). Good for the price! With my limited experience, think S'pore don't have big gusts of winds so still sturdy enough here heh...
    Checkout TK Foto's websites to see the specifications of the different Sirui tripods (don't think I can link to their website from here, though you see link from this page: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/tk-fo...1-tk-foto.html)
    1.7kg is heavy? Back in the day it is considered a light weight tripod. LOL.

    Anyway, from my understanding, Sirui is no longer offering the R1004. R series start with 2004. They reserve the smaller sizes for their Tx series.

    BTW some of those pics are not shot with Sirui. Sirui is my travel pod. But does it matter?

    R1004 with G10 is still available from TK Foto at $129.

    Yup and its even a better during the previous IT show period. Same price but with free gifts of a bean bag pod and a cleaning kit.

    Oh its Sirui R2004, no wonder I cannot find on internet. I don't really intend to bring overseas, so I think 1.7kg still not that bad.

    factor in the ball head - the G20 is 0.4kg so around 2.1kg. If you think that is ok then looks like you're set!

    yes sir! looks like i should save on R2204 and get R2004 instead, start training up my back then move on to your 4kg stuff
